December Swap Crop Partners

29 November 2016 - 09:12 AM

Don't faint, lol, but I'm actually posting the December Swap Crop early!! December is a crazy busy month, so I wanted to give you all a little extra time. The theme for December is a color challenge: RED! Any photos with red in them or that can be scrapped with red are perfect for the swap.

 

Here's how it works: Sign up in this thread by Tuesday, December 6th. On Wednesday, December 7th, I'll list the participants in a column. Contact the person above you and below you on the list and exchange email addresses. You'll send photos to the person below you and receive photos from the person above you. The last person on the list will send to the first person on the list. You can send as many photos as you'd like, and any journaling, but only 1 layout is required. Reveal day is Saturday, December 31st. That's the day you'll post your layouts in the Swap Crop Gallery and send a flattened, hi-resolution copy of the layout you created for your partner to her.

 

Here are the partners for the last swap of 2016!!

Weekend Wildcard Challenge, November 26th

26 November 2016 - 09:16 AM

Weekend Challenge, 11/26

 

Thanksgiving has just passed here in the US, and I must have looked at a hundred recipes for the holiday, looking for new dishes or twists on dishes we've tried in the past. For the most part, I keep things the same over the years, sticking to tried and true dishes my family likes. So, for today's challenge, I've created a recipe card for you all to follow to create a layout, using "tried and true" tasks with a twist!

Post your layouts in the Weekend Wildcard Gallery so we can see your finished "dishes"!


Weekend Wildcard Challenge, November 12th

12 November 2016 - 08:42 AM

As many of you know, we moved to a new state over the summer. My mom was just in town to visit for the first time and we went exploring! I got some beautiful photos and when I thought about scrapping them, I wondered if other scrappers have photos of their towns that need to be scrapped.

 

So, for the Weekend Challenge, play tourist in your current town, a town you lived in, your state, your neighborhood or even inside your home! Post your layouts to the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery so we can tour your "home turf" with you!


Double Time Speed Scrap, 9 pm et

05 November 2016 - 09:00 AM

Join Carla (crs) in the chat room for a Double Time Speed Scrap where we'll get a layout done super fast! We will give out 6 tasks over the course of an hour. After the last task is given, you'll have one hour to post your layouts to the gallery. We'll get you scrapping Double Time!

 

I'll update this post with the tasks as they are revealed in the chat room, so if you can't make the chat or have chat room problems, you can still participate!

 

Task #1- Choose one photo and duplicate it at least two times, so you have at least 3 photos now. Layer the photos on top of each other in a fun way, but a portion of each photo must be showing. It can be just a sliver of an edge of the photo, but it must be there!

 

Task #2-Choose 2 papers for your background and blend them together using your favorite method. You can use blending modes, gradients, SS Papers, Brushes…whatever you want!

 

Task #3-Add your embellishments, as many was you want, but there must be at least 2 of every embellishment you use!

 

Task #4-Create a title AND subtitle for your layout. You must use two of the following to create your title: alphas, fonts or word art. You can use 2 different fonts or alphas…feel free to use one of each even!

 

Task #5-Add a little something something to your layouts by using at least 2 styles or brushes (or one of each). Shadows do not count!

 

Task #6-Add your journaling and date if you wish, plus any shadows. Make any adjustments to your layouts so that you love them, even if it means changing one of the tasks. Upload your layouts to the gallery within the next hour for a true Speed Scrap! Happy DSD!


November Swap Crop Partners

04 November 2016 - 06:44 AM

The November Swap Crop theme is Animals! My mom is in town and we took her to the Louisville Zoo and their collection of animals was amazing! I know Scrap Girls loves animals, too, so I thought this would be a fun theme. You can swap any kind of animal photo, even kids acting like animals! I'm excited for reveal day already!!

 

Here's how it works: Sign up in this thread by Thursday, November 10th. On Friday, November 11th, I'll list the participants in a column. Contact the person above you and below you on the list and exchange email addresses. You'll send photos to the person below you and receive photos from the person above you. The last person on the list will send to the first person on the list. You can send as many photos as you'd like, and any journaling, but only 1 layout is required. Reveal day is Saturday, November 26th. That's the day you'll post your layouts in the Swap Crop Gallery and send a flattened, hi-resolution copy of the layout you created for your partner to her.
